Dermaplaning at Glamour Secrets in Chilliwack

“What is Dermaplaning?” , you ask

Dermaplaning is a simple, safe and non-invasive procedure for exfoliating the epidermis and ridding the skin of fine vellus hair (peach fuzz). It has been used for many years, but many estheticians don’t even know it exists, and certainly, many don’t use it.

Who may have this treatment done and what are the benefits?

Dermaplaning currently has no negative effects. It has become extremely popular in Medi-Spas cross country and comes specifically from California.

How is this treatment done?

A scalpel is delicately used to wear away the surface of the epidermis, using delicate feathering movements. Benefits include the appearance of reduced deep “pit-like” acne scars to produce a more even, smooth complexion. Dermaplaning is meant to treat much smaller, but much deeper scars that can come from having cystic acne. There are gentler methods of dermaplaning that are occasionally used to exfoliate or as hair removal treatments.

What skin types benefit from this treatment?

All skin types can benefit from Dermaplaning, however, an acne skin type and an excessively oily skin needs to be thoroughly cleaned before.This is a great treatment to offer to patients who are pregnant or nursing who want a deep exfoliation, but are not allowed to use peeling agents or harsh chemicals on their skin because of the risk that the chemicals will be absorbed into the blood stream, and may be transferred to their unborn child. It is also a first choice for patients who have excess fine hair on the skin. Fine hair often causes a buildup of dirt and oils in the follicles, so removing the hair gives the patient healthier looking skin.

Dermaplaning treatment takes approximately 45 minutes and includes a facial massage in the session. It is recommended that you return every 3-4 weeks for maximum effects.
